, now, homeland security secretary janet napolitano did tour the area yesterday with fema, promising resources. governor andrew cuomo of new york promising $100 million for relieve for these victims of hurricane sandy, and even this morning, announcing there will be a temporary deployment of gas trac trucks to help with the shortage. the residents are desperate and i'm joined by a staten island resident, good morning to you. >> good morning, how are you? >> reporter: tell me, what have you been dealing with? you are all fired up. >> what is going on, we are stuck on this avenue, and a lot of neighbors are and we have no electricity, no phones, no cell phones and we can't get in touch with fema. we tried to put on-line applications and most of us don't have internet access... >> reporter: you checked the internet and you said, i don't have internet. >> i don't have it and, i have been chasing fema and they told me to go to susan wagner and go down by the beach, here and now i found out, we are supposed to be here at 9 o'clock and now they are... >> reporter: you are chasing them aroun
. i have not heard from fema, the coast guard, no one. it is startling. >> very angry and fed up. what are we, is this america? i don't know. i don't know. i don't like it. we are going downhill. >> i came here four or five years ago, expected we came here for a better life, opportunity, and this is what we come from. this is ridiculous. not how its supposed to be. gerri: it wasn't just residents. take a look at the front page of "the new york post." an abuse of power, there were two generators being used for the marathon to power the media tent. a third backup generator that wasn't being used. for more on this, joined by adam shapiro in staten island where he has been reporting all day long, and editor-in-chief of runner's world which follows all of this. i will start with you, what has been the response from people you have been talking to all day long about this idea of having a marathon in the wake of sandy? >> people wanted it canceled. when it was announced it was being canceled i asked police officers what they felt about it and they responded in unison "good." now a girl we spo
in action after superstorm sandy might flip that argument on its head. fema put 1900 people on the ground so far. it has made more than half a million meals. given out more than 600,000 liters of water and thousands of blankets and cots to anyone who needs them. will this quick reaction by the government change the mind of any voters and help president obama? joining me democratic strategist chris hahn, brad blakeman, fox news contributor, and former deputy assistant to president george w. bush. chris i have to admit, government is looking pretty good the last couple days here. i don't know. do you think it is having impact on voters out there? >> look, it is hard to argue that fema is not necessary. also hard to argue that fema performs much better under a democratic president than it did under republican president. melissa: you made a jump from that one. >> look, bottom line the republican platform this entire summer, government bad, government bad, government bad. melissa: right. >> if you look paul ryan budget, it desmates fema. we need fema to coordinate between the states. that's why w
, the federal government through fema and the fema funds. third, state funds and state programs that are available. we had a conversation with the president last night. once again, he was asking how he could help, how the federal government could help and what came out of that conversation is we will be the blowing 30 joint teams in the region. between the state and the federal government through fema. these teams will have an expert in each area. an expert with private insurance, and expert with fema, and an expert with the state who knows the state housing programs these joint teams will be deployed in the 30 key areas in the region and fema will be providing the 30 personnel for those teams. we think the president for that. it is another step in a full agenda of federal assistance to our region. we thank them for that. those 30 teams will start to be assembled next week. they will be dispatched to the affected communities speaker governor andrew cuomo of new york. a couple things he pointed out. 90% of the island, which is really such a huge number when you think about it, th
, i quote, an absurd notion. they say because big government is better, whether it is fema or a new department of business that president obama wants too create about which we can talk more if you have time. but bottom line, fema has a terrible track record, most big federal bureaucracies do, they come up with their man made inside of the beltway, which does not necessarily fit when applied to a state or local community, any time there is a difference of opinion with between the local guys and federal government, the feds -- 92 bu92. neil: but they all welcome fema help. >> when it involves money. do you think that chris christie would have said that if it are not for the money. neil: that is his acknowledgment that government works ? >> no, that is his acknowledge am he could use all federal money he can get. this is a political statement, on part of chris christie, and everyone is trying to be as friendly as they can before the election. they don't want to be seen as using this for political purposes. neil: you say, the times leaves you wondering whether private enterprise can wor
would,. state government is here. we're doing what we need to do. we're coordinating with fema. i want to thank administrator fugate for being here and helping our operation even better and we'll move on from here. what i said yesterday i really mean. there has got to be sorrow. and you see that in, president has seen that today in the eyes and faces of a lot of folks he met. and that sorrow is appropriate. we suffered some loss. luckily we haven't suffered that much loss of life and we thank god for that. we have suffered losses. this is the worst time i've seen in my lifetime in this state but we can not permit that sorrow to reprays the -- replace resilience i know all new jerseyians have. we'll get up and get this thing built and get it back together because that is what this state is about and always been about. for all who are here, i met a bunch of you here at brigantine who disregarded my admonition to get the hell out of here. you are forgiven this time but not for much longer. when all of you look around and see all this destruction that's fine. you know what? all that stuff
obama. >> and at 2 a.m. i got a call from fema and signed a couple of declarations, and give credit to the president, on the phone with me, three times, and anything i've asked for and i thank the president publicly for that he's done as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. charles: of course, chris christie is known as a straight shooter and argue that president obama has looked presidential during the storm so far, what do you think, david? >> well, all he has to do is do his job and it's not going to help or hurt him i think on the political front, it's a matter of just appearing that i've taken care of whatever the states have asked me to do. fema will have to do their responsibilities and we'll see how that plays out over the days. >> it plays for governor romney. both of these guys, you cannot ignore a fact a week from today is the election. charles: right. >> so, he has to do everything he can -- well, the president has to do everything he has to do. charles: how does it help romney. >> criticize iffed he doesn't do his job. he's criticized if he does too much and
. fema officials say, sandy is not anywhere near being over either end as of right now this storm is moving inland, and dumping more than a foot of snow in west virginia, today at 3 feet predicted in some regions. what is left of hurricanes and the remains powerful, and tonight it threatens the midwest. officials in chicago warning people to keep their distance from lake michigan where high winds are expected to create waves reaching as much as 24 feet in height. meteorologist calling sandy a once-in-a-lifetime storm with some experts predicting a $20 billion in damages as the now more than 20 states have been hit by the super store. tonight we will be bringing you up today, of course, the presidential campaign which has come as you might expect, been thrown into disarray. both candid it's scrapping their event schedules and polling agencies such as gallops suspending their operations, at least in terms of the daily tracking. governor romney today focused on fund-raising for the victims of the deadly storm while president obama canceled his events through wednesday to monitor the
have been better had they been here a day before or two days before. fema just hit the ground today. but they won't be in full effect until tomorrow. it is frustration. people have lost everything and they are stuck in shelters and high schools on cots. we really need that temporary housing to start putting them in apartments and giving them some sort of certainty. people are just very frustrated. everyone is working as hard as they can. gerri: horseman, this is a question i have thought about time and again in regards to the storm. was the region prepared for this? were be adequately ready for a storm of this size? >> i don't think you are ever completely ready for something like this. gerri: that is true, but were we ready? you are saying that the help that you need did not come quite as fast as he wanted. are you saying that we needed to do more? >> i think we could've done better. i think we both could have done a little better. but i just don't think anyone anticipated that anyone anticipated this much devastation. i don't think anyone expected houses on staten island -- comple
to let you know the political is reporting tonight that as far as disaster money in the bank had fema the mafia currently has about $8 billion on hand to respond to this hurricane. so there will be billions out there. we know this is -- right now one of the preliminary estimates that 10-20000000000. so fema does apparently have about $8 billion for its disaster relief.lly we have gotn confirmation from the romney campaign that governor romney u.s. canceled his campaign events will be holding a hurricane relief advance in ohio tomorrow. back to you. neil: thank you very much. we are getting word that of new jersey right now that holes was of the midsection, the northern section of new jersey are without power. by the way, that would include my wife and family, but it might be my wife's way of saying i really cannot be bothered watching a. al pretend it is a power outage. in all seriousness, that is the case. that would affect up to a million new jersey is, if you had said no 100,000 now without power in connecticut, likely upwards of 2 million in new york. you could add it up and see h
could be. fema has put water bottles, blankets, all up and down the east coast ready to be deployed once there's any damage. for right now, it is from the federal government wait and see where this is specifically going to hit. a number of different responses. department of defense saying they've also got national guard ready in case that's needed. it is coming back here and just seeing where it is going to hit and how bad it is going to be. charles: thanks a lot. we know the u.s. equity markets are closed. here's a visual explanation as to why. you see the new york stock exchange is just blocks away from the new harbor, which right now is under a whole lot of water already this morning. we see the storm starting to surge over the water walls down there already. this is fresh video right now into fox business, but the commodities markets, well, they are trading because they trade in chicago and that's where sandra smith joins us for the cme. real big action in oil. sandra: i want to show you the trading floor down here because we're not shy of trading action or traders on the floor. you
will stop hitting the ground, whether it is the red cross and fema. fema was knocking on doors. [talking over each other] neil: what were they doing when they were knocking on doors? >> giving people desperately needed information and letting them know wat the processes and there were inspectors looking at how to assees the damage to the people can start to get some funding so they can start replacing in putting together their lives. going door-to-door is tremely important. a lot of things that happened today that, you know, need desperately to be done. we are still hurttng. it is a tremendous amount to be done. there are a lot of people are looking for answers and still haven't been gone through. the only backslapping that there should be at all is from the volunteers of the shelters and the hospital staff is working around the clock. and even con edison has been out there 24/7. i know there is power outages, but they are doing erything they can. those are our hers. the nypd and the first responders. they are unbelievable. neil: thank you, very much, congressman michael grimm. and it st
, things of that nature are all freed up. just got this from the white house, fema is going door-to-door, people might need assistance at the coast guard and taking the lead to identify hazardous floodwaters. not exactly the cleanest water on earth. how do you dispose of that and also fema will support any request from state officials who need help with polling places next week, only a few days from the federal election. the irs is granting taxpayers affected by the hurricane until november 7th if they were supposed to file returns or payments for today. the fdic telling financial institutions if they are having problems with their reporting timeline they can contact them as well. campaign continues tomorrow. mitt romney will be in virginia. president obama back on the campaign trail. green bay, wisconsin, boulder, colorado, las vegas. melissa: thanks for that report. ashley: let's get back to check the markets. the dow up by 35 points and have been in this range for a while. nicole petallides on the nyse. big movers in the wake of sandy. nicole: we will follow sandy at aftermath
be worried about you. we have had great cooperation from fema, the national guard, salvation army and from state officials and i wanted to thank all the individual companies and nonprofit who have donated so generously. that includes the road runners club donated a million dollars to the relief effort in that amount may go as high as $2 million if the runners club has asked each runner in this weekend's marathon to contribute $26.20, $1 for each mile of the race and hopefully some will be more than that. they are running this race to help new york city and donations from all the runners will be a big relief effort. if you remember, you go back to 9/11, i think they made the right decision in those days to run the marathon, it pulled people together, and we have to find some ways to express ourselves and show our solidarity with each other. we have raised almost $10 million for individuals and corporations including the charitable trust and the ceo of. my company, rupert murdoch. melissa: that was mayor michael bloomberg. we were waiting to hear what he was going to say about the marathon b
there was such a name for a team, but honestly to new york, and we need them very badly. fema has also said set up a hotline for individuals. the fema hotline is (##8)121-3622 i have been involved in disaster. i have seen all types of disasters. i was in hurricane andrew in homestead florida. i was in the red river floods. the midwest floods, entire cities wiped away. the earthquakes in california. i have to tell you what i saw last night. what went on and the south shore of long island. they were some of the worst conditions i have seen. the hudson river, downtown manhattan, it was literally pouring into the ground zero site. would such a force that we were worried about the structure of the pit itself. joe and i just happened to run into each other in downtown manhattan. when i tell you the hudson river was pouring into the brooklyn battery tunnel like a river at high velocity, it was a frightening sight. while the hudson was coming over from the west from the, the east river was coming over from the east. the amount of water and the acceleration and the rising of the river was really frightenin
hear from fema. they are waiting to see what happens. fema has moved water bottles and blankets all up and down the east coast. right now it is a matter of where will the storm hit and how hard is it going to hit? they are waiting and trying to figure out where all of this will happen. back to you. dagen: thank you so much for that. sandy already closing markets and delaying earnings reports and good even close to jobs report on friday. however, what would happen if that did happen. connell: art laffer joins us now. the statement about 45 minutes ago came from the census bureau. they said there was no decision as they put it on delaying the jobs report on friday. we both said we think it is unlikely. you do not want to feed into anything. what do you say? >> i think they will publish it. i do want to say that it is so much fun being with the two of you. mcdowell and mcshane, you know, everyone is investing in ireland. you know why, because the capital is always dublin. connell: we have to take a quick break right now mayor bloomberg just walked up to the podium. this is a city office o
our fema legislation that to the best of our ability to tries to make whole. there is going to be needs for more loans for people to get their businesses back up and running. the most disturbing thing is the inability of people to make a living short-term, because their business has been destroyed. if they were 100 reds of yards of -- hundreds of yards of the boardwalk, this is a beautiful area in and around the area appreciates, and see it destroyed, so completely, you know brings tearing ts tears to, even when people talk like i did about important of pla balance budget, there is always that caveat, we write into balance budget amendment, when there is is a national disaster, that takes precedent, we need to be fully onboard, in providing whatever resources are needed to make it whole. gerri: fema, hamstrung has a lot of debt, congressman, i hope you come back to and talk to us about it. i certainly hope that your family, and everyone close to you is safe tonight, thank you for your help. >> thank you. gerri: all right meanwhile story goes o8 million people that i talked a
about what i thought about the work of fema. i have to tell you fema has done a great job with our pennsylvania emergency management agency. very pleased at their responsiveness. i'm pleased at their responsiveness from the president and telling us they will be there to help us. so i think if, christie is talking that way he has an honest feeling about that. melissa: governor, thanks so much for coming on the show and taking time out. i hope you get your power back soon. >> thank you very much. we appreciate that. melissa: clearly one of the major issues in the wake of storm is power. we can't stop talking about it. check out this video though. it is an explosion at a power station in new york city during monday night's superstorm. that was in manhattan. can you believe that? look at that! there are still more than 6 million people up and undo the east coast without power. some utilities are telling customers not to, look at that, not to expect juice for at least another week. that means no lights, no hot water, no heat. not to mention all the food going bad in everyone's fridges.
a difficult time communicating with fema. according to that report because of many of the process is the manual, the culture have become dependent on individual people. staff relying on personal relationships to accomplish tasks. including -- concluded from the gao, a total revamp. maybe that is why the improperly paid nearly $100 million to hurricane victims after katrina and rita between 2005 and 2010. just earlier this month the agency waived its demands for repayment. altogether, 371 million was paid out in error. taken a reminder to everybody out there, that's our money fellow taxpayers. remember katrina trailers, 145,000 of them deemed unsafe because they had high levels of formaldehyde. we pay for that. there were used anyway by storm victims. if you're thinking poor fema is having problems because it is woefully understaffed, not true. the agency has grown in the wake of katrina. the funding extension passed by congress this fall addressed very little of these problems. made an attempt to stop insuring properties that are repeatedly flooded, but addressing the beer issue,
challenge by going to cut fema which is a made up talking point and it is silly the way we politicize every last detail of these things. i don't know if it will affect -- the biggest way will affect the campaign is in turn out. difficult for people to vote in these states and pennsylvania would be the most obvious place. dagen: the president gets to be just that for at least the last couple weeks. and prevent his opponent from going after in a way that he would. how does that not helped him? >> think about it as a resident of new york, the people who benefit from this politically are chris christie or michael bloomberg or seem to be doing things. i don't care what the president says and i don't think you do either and don't care what mitt romney has to say about this and local information, when will the subway run on time. and receive that kind of benefit. mitt romney could still attack the president about benghazi. dagen: these are super. states. connell: all of us talking about the storm the last few days, politics are starting -- i can tell from my twitter feed that it was all storm and

to take money from new jersey, ship it to washington and have fema ship it back. stuart: doesn't federal money open up the spigots for private enterprise. if the feds are backing maybe reconstruction and backing the-- putting generators in place, if the federal government is backing that financially and with national resources, isn't that a help? >> yeah, but the federal government's broke. that money is taken from somewhere, it's taken from other people. if the people in new jersey decide, i need a generator, it's much better decided there, than the fema scandals are endless. after katrina they turned away free water from wal-martt stuart: okay, i'm in my house, a wife and two young kids and we have water up the bag stairs, i'm marooned in my bedroom and leaning out the window and saying, private enterprise help me, help me. no, i'm not going to say that. i'm going to say you cops, firefighters, please come get me, i need help this is an emergency. >> that's all local government. why would you want to send your money to washington for your local cops to help you? >> so that you only obj
involved. if we did not have fema and the coordination between all the governors and mayors working together -- i heard one governor saying that when we had this type of crisis before, a southern governor asked him from the north to sense of national guards people down and not only did they go down, but they said it was one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences they ever had. helping each other out, but putting together lives where people are saying they are lucky to be alive and able to move forward. we cannot imagine how we can do more to help those people. dagen: what can people do close back i have had a lot of people asked me. >> everybody knows somebody. one of the most serious obstacles of growing old is being lonely. if people could just call somebody to assure them that if they need anything that they are there. give them a call. let people know that we do not have to see each other every day to consider each other family. and for god's sake, do not let forgetting somebody come back and haunt us because we should have been there when we should have been. i have bee
, an outspoken republican is giving the president praise. take a listen. >> at 2:00 a.m. i got a call from fema to answer a couple of file questions and then -- final questions and then he signed the declaration this morning. the president has been on the the phone with me three times the last 24 hours. he's been very attentive and anything i have asked for, he has gotten to me. i thank the president publicly for that. he has done as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. charles: coming up mike reagan's response to chris christie and his praise of the president. that's at 10:30. let's get back to the markets. sandra smith is at the cme in chicago. is everything back to normal? sandra: oh my gosh, charles, where are you? we're up above the stairs here. can you see me yet? larry? larry? all right. what we're doing right now is we just got done talking to terry duffy the executive chairman of the the exchange and he's saying the exchange so far has had a smooth open. s&p 500 futures, dow, nasdaq futures have all opened for the first time in three trading sessions. all opened up to the u
